This book shows clinicians how they can become more effective therapists by understanding and applying recent findings about the brain in their work with children and adolescents. The result is a new kind of therapy, one that takes into account both the uniqueness of each child or adolescent, as well as the requirements of standardized care as recommended by evidence-based practice - offering mental health practitioners advice they can put into practice immediately. The book relies on research in developmental neurobiology, brain imaging, and evidence-based psychotherapeutic practices, and applies it to disorders such as AD/HD, OCD and depression.
